"Because the conspiracy theorists would claim we were lying and just trying to scare people."
Now at that point I rose up and yelled " What BS. OMG as if! We scream for disclosure and hidden truth , why on earth would we do that???"

There is no problem with being a Skeptic OP. If your skepticism goes over the border of egotism. Then you would realize it immediately, for example: You scoff at religion or something on the news, automatically believing it is untruthful. This would be in my opinion, skepticism brought to you unconsciously or through the ego. A true skeptic would give a truth only to her experience, with the rest of her inexperience a question mark. If you are always aware of your thoughts flowing inside you are mind, everything you perhaps read or watch in a video or an article would mean nothing!
The truth has a way of coming to you, it is not through hard and complex thought out theories. It is also not through logical correctiveness, this would be a product of social accepted thought. And as a conspiracy theorist, don't you seek to go beyond that? There must be a hidden way to find truth, we humans often find things to hide inside ourselves. To be secure that only you can know, if someone else knows the truth will be perverted. This creates an over attachment to a truth, then it no longer becomes a truth. But a dirty secret, that you hide unconsciously and obsessively.
Like how many people have said, don't always believe in what you hear. The truth cannot be dissected with your conscious mind through logical deduction. It is simply knowing, being a skeptic is a great feature in your self though. But the truth will always be as simple as the sun rising every morning and the river flowing. You don't know why it does that, but the truth is. We come to see this as everyday life and we accept this. Why cannot we continue doing the same without over complicated it? The best skeptic, is carefree in everything he hears.
